Bird Weekly Round-Up – Week #22

Week #22 challenge was Shore Birds.

Disclaimer: If anyone has an issue with me using their photos in the round ups, please kindly let me know. I haven’t had anyone say anything, but I don’t want you to think I’m using your photographs for personal gain. I’m here to show what great work you are doing with your photography by showing you off in these posts.

This week shore birds covered a lot of territory. Water is a necessity for all birds just like humans, however not all birds hang out near the shoreline, whether it be saltwater, freshwater or brackish. Shore birds come in all shapes, sizes and species. We had quite the variety this week.

I encourage you to visit their blogs and see what amazing things they have going on. If I missed your post or there was a problem with a pingback, please let me know and I will be glad to add you to the list. Remember to pingback from my post of that week and not my page. Liking my page is encouraged!

I had to share this again because it is my favorite animated short. And it is appropriate for shore birds this week. Hope you enjoy even if you’ve seen it before.

Next up: Week #23: Long legged birds


I look forward to seeing your creations this week!

    • Yes they are both in the Larus Genus with a lot of other gulls. The Ring-billed gull is quite common here too and it is related. Herring Gulls hybridize so I’m sure they all got relatives somewhere that are the same. LOL! That’s why gulls are so darn hard to identify sometimes. πŸ™‚ Wiki has the list of Genus at this link.


  1. When I click on “VISIT MY BIRD WEEKLY PAGE FOR A FULL LIST OF UPCOMING CHALLENGES AND RULES!” I get an error message saying I can’t edit the page, which I obviously am not trying to do. It’s probably not you, but WP or the internet just being funky. I don’t get your posts regularly. these days, I’m not getting anything regularly. There are real problems with my ISP. If you can alert me to what is next, or send me a link, I’d appreciate it. If not, I understand.
